The Chairs’ Hiatus - Guest Post - Chris A’Lurede

Chris A’lurede, one of my oldest and closest friends, did this beautiful drawing of Mary and Nel to help support the Kickstarter to turn the story into a hardback 2 color book. It’s one of several awesome illustrations and new comics that’s going to be included in The Chairs’ Hiatus companion book, providing we reach our last stretch goal.

This illustration is also going to be in the liner notes to The Chairs first album reward, which you get if you back at the $40 level. It’s like the band photo!

I’m absolutely amazed and humbled by this drawing can’t thank Chris enough for it.

There are only 4 days till the end of the Kickstarter and your last chance to get rewards like posters, fake albums, tickets to fictional Chairs concerts, t-shirts, original art, and, if we reach $6,600 an exclusive companion book.

Thank you to everyone who’s backed and shared links so far. You are amazing, and I’ve already started digging into this new challenge of making and shipping all this cool stuff to you!

Here’s a link to the Kickstarter page if you want to take a look.

"But the more basic problem here is that Amazon is violating its own code. To win a corporate battle, Amazon is ruining its customer experience. Mr. Bezos has long pointed to customer satisfaction as his North Star; making sure customers are treated well is the guiding principle for how he runs Amazon.

Now Amazon is raising prices, removing ordering buttons, lengthening shipping times and monkeying with recommendation algorithms. Do these sound like the moves of a man who cares about customers above all else?”

How would you explain Overcast to the average App Store user who’s probably okay with Apple’s Podcasts app?

There’s no reason to settle for just being “okay” with an app that you use every day.

Overcast Review

"For individual episodes, on the other hand, you’ll be able to manually recommend an episode by tapping the star button in the share sheet or next to an episode’s title in the show notes. This gesture is reminiscent of Instapaper’s Like button for articles: episodes you like will be advertised to people who follow you on Twitter and who have decided to get Twitter recommendations from Overcast, but they won’t be automatically tweeted or shared anywhere else."

I love the way this mechanism works to allowing users of the new iOS podcast client “Overcast” to recommend specific episodes to friends. I wish more services work this way.
